A couple of weeks ago, my good friend Adam was kind enough to take me to the gun range and show me how to shoot. I’d never fired a real gun before and thought that I’d give it a try. The experience was quite fun. I plan to do it again. We started with the safety instructions and with the practice pistol, pictured as yellow, but it was in fact, orange – strange lighting and white balance challenges. After safety…

It’s NY and I this little micro project could have been hundreds of photos long, easy picking. One day I was out walking and just noticed how many people had their phones out while walking down the street, crossing busy streets and avenues, on the riverfront where some beautiful views were unfolding, in restaurants, walking along The High Line, at lunch with their coworkers and friends, and the list goes one. After very few shots, I became disinterested, honestly, because…

As an older fella, I didn’t even know what “TL;DR” meant until just a few weeks ago. In fact, I had to look it up online. I kept seeing it there and there. I thought that it was some misplaced HTML code 🙂 For those of you who don’t know, TL;DR stands for Too Long; Didn’t Read. Basically, it seems, people, especially younger ones, have no desire to read things that are involved, or semi-involved … writings more than say…

I have just returned from another work trip to NYC. While there I put in quite a few miles on the sneakers, in fact, more miles in any one week than I’ve never done before. I walked about 60 miles in 7 days, all around Manhattan. I walked up to Central Park, through Times Square, down to Greenwich Village, almost to The Battery, The High Line, and all points in between. My Fitbit was praising me quite a bit. 🙂…

No. Not like Colorado Rocky Mountain “high”, but a few feet above ground level 🙂 On Sunday, I went with a group on a hike in Crowder’s Mountain State Park. I’d been there a few times before. It was a great day to be out and about, walking through the woods and up the mountain. There were 10 of us, 8 women, 2 men. According to what I could find online, the elevation change from the visitor’s center to the…

Wow! It’s been nearly a month since I last posted. I’ve been keeping quite busy, enjoying life. I’m adding lots of miles onto the sneakers, going the YMCA a couple of times per week, learning a new (to me) programming language called Scala, working, visiting friends, and of course, continuing with my Spanish lessons, etc. You know, life! Last week I spent 8 days in Ohio with my sister. I decided that since I work from home, home can be…
